    Man-computer symbiosis is an expected development in cooperative interaction between men and electronic computers. It will involve very close coupling between the human and the electronic members of the partnership. The main aims are 1) to let computers facilitate formulative thinking as they now facilitate the solution of formulated problems, and 2) to enable men and computers to cooperate in mak...

    A simple instrument for measurement of eye movements has permitted demonstration of the fact that changing the characteristics of the target-position signal has important effects on the nature of the biological servomechanism controlling the movements. In particular, there is an adaptive predictor that allows the system to overcome its innate delays upon exposure to a regular input pattern. View full abstract»

    This paper reports experimental results of human operator performance in a visual recognition task. The work began with a method of generating families of complex patterns to simulate certain characteristics of visual sensor displays, such as radar and infrared returns. The experimental effort was directed toward establishing criteria for predicting human operator performance in a map matching tas... View full abstract»

    Methods of reading for the blind are discussed, mindful of the human-factors and systems-engineering concepts involved. Machines to allow independent reading of ink-print by the blind are classified in terms of cost, complexity, auditory or tactile output, usefulness, ease of operation, and learning problems. Current experiments in character recognition are briefly mentioned, and in conclusion ref... View full abstract»

    This paper reports the results of studies in a series concerning the characteristics of push-button keysets that people can operate quickly, accurately and conveniently. The studies investigated push-button arrangements, button top and lettering characteristics, and push-button force-displacement characteristics. Considerable latitude exists in the design of keysets if only keying performance is c... View full abstract»
